Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional

  1. You are administering a Windows 2000 Professional, single Pentium II 400Mhz processor computer.You need to install a new accounting software application.The software manufacturer recommends that you use a dual-processor configuration.First, you install a second identical processor in your computer.

    You need to ensure that you will be able to install the new software.

    What should you do next?

    1. Update the HAL to support multiple processors.
    2. In Device Manager, disable the direct memory access controller.
    3. Use the Add/Remove Hardware Wizard to detect and install the driver for the new processor.
    4. Reinstall Windows 2000 Professional to support a multi-processor configuration.

    Answer: A

    Explanation: The Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) must be updated using the Device Manager to support multiple processors.To update the HAL open the System applet in the Control Panel, select the 'hardware' tab and click the 'Device Manager' button.In Device Manager, expand Computer, right-click Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) PC (or similar), select Properties, select Driver Tab, then select Update Driver.The Update Device Driver Wizard starts and can be used to update the HAL.

  2. Your Windows 2000 Professional computer has 50 MB of free disk space on drive C and 500 MB free disk space on drive D.Print jobs are failing because the available space on drive C is inadequate.

    You want the printer to be able to use the space on drive D.

    What should you do?

    1. From the Print Server Properties dialog box, change the location of the spool folder to any existing file path on drive D.
    2. From the Printer Properties dialogue box, use Advanced settings to change the location of the spool folder to D:\WinNT\System32\spools\Printers.
    3. Copy the C:\WinNT\System32\spool\Printers folder to the D:\WinNT\system32\spool\Printers folder.
    4. Mount drive C as a subdirectory on drive D.

    Answer: A

    Explanation: The location of the spool folder can be specified on the Advanced tab of the Print Server Properties dialog box.To change the spool folder location, open the Printers folder, open File menu, select Server Properties, select the Advanced tab, enter the path and the name of the new default spool folder for this print server, and then click Close.

  3. You are the administrator of your company's network.Your network has 200 Windows 2000 Professional computers and 15 Windows 2000 Server computers.Users on the network save their work files in home folders on a network server.The NTFS partition that contains the home folders has Encrypting File System (EFS) enabled.

    A user named John leaves the company.You move all of the files from John's home folder to his manager's folder.When the manager attempts to open any of the files, she receives the following error message: "Access denied."

    You want the manager to be able to access the files.

    What should you do?

    1. Grant the manager NTFS Full Control permission to the files.
    2. Grant the manager NTFS Take Ownership permission to the files.
    3. Log on to the network as a Recovery Agent.Decrypt the files for the manager.
    4. Log on to the network as a member of the Backup Operators Group.Decrypt the files for the manager.

    Answer: C

    Explanation: An encrypted file on an EFS partition can only be decrypted by the owner of file or by the Recovery Agent.

  4. Your Windows 2000 Professional computer contains a single hard disk configured as a single partition. You want to move a folder named Sales under a folder named Corp on your computer.

    You want the files in the Sales folder to remain compressed after moving the folder.You want the files in the Corp folder to remain uncompressed.You want to ensure that the files are recoverable in case of any disk problems.You also want to move the files with the least amount of administrative effort.

    What should you do?

    1. Copy the Sales folder to the Corp folder.Do nothing further.
    2. Backup the Sales folder.Move the Sales folder to the Corp folder.
    3. Compress the Corp folder.Then copy the Sales folder to the Corp folder.
    4. Move the Sales folder to a second computer.Then move the Sales folder to the Corp folder.

    Answer: B

    Explanation: The contents of the Sales folder should be backed up so that files would be recoverable in case of disk problems.You could move the Sales folder to the CORP folder, as the files will remain compressed since the folder is moved within a single partition.The general rules on copying and moving compressed files and folder are: files and folders copied within a NTFS volume and between NTFS volumes inherit the compression state of the target folder; files and folders moved between NTFS volumes inherit the compression state of the target folder; and files and folders moved within an NTFS volume retain the original compression state of the file or folder.

  5. You are creating a dial-up connection on your Windows 2000 portable computer to connect to your customer's dial-up server.You are not sure which type of server your customer is using for dial-up connections.You want to ensure that your dial-up connection authentication is secure and that your logon information is not sent in plain text.You view the Advanced Security Settings dialog box as shown in the exhibit.

    Which option or options should you disable in the Advanced Security Settings dialog box?

      (Choose all that apply)
    1. Unencrypted password (PAP)
    2. Shiva Password Authentication Protocol (SPAP)
    3. Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP)
    4. Microsoft CHAP (MS-CHAP)
    5. Microsoft CHAP Version 2 (MS-CHAP v2)
    6. For Microsoft CHAP based protocols.

    Answer: A

    Explanation: PAP is the least complicated authentication protocol and sends passwords in plain text. Passwords are thus not encrypted passwords.This authentication protocol is used when a more secure means of authentication cannot be negotiated between two computers.You should therefore disable PAP to ensure that login information is not sent in plain text.

  6. Your company upgrades its network to 100 Mbps.You remove the old network adapter and install a new 10/100 Mbps network adapter into a Windows 2000 Professional computer.You configure the TCP/IP protocol settings to be the same as they were for the previously installed network adapter.

    When you restart the computer, however, you cannot access the network.You try to ping your network adapter's TCP/IP address locally.You receive the following error message, "Request timed out".Next, you try to ping 127.0.0.1 and receive the same error message.

    What must you do?

    1. Configure a different TCP/IP address.
    2. Enable DHCP in the TCP/IP properties.
    3. Enable DNS in the TCP/IP properties.
    4. Configure the network adapter to run at 100 Mbps only.
    5. Replace the network adapter.

    Answer: E

    Explanation: The 127.0.0.1 IP address is a loop back address that creates a connection with the local computer via the network adapter.As the same error message was received when pinging the loop back address, a faulty network adapter card on the local computer is indicated.You therefore need to replace the network adapter card on the local computer.

  7. You install Windows 2000 Professional on your computer.Your computer has a built-in 33.6 kbps modem.You install a 56-kbps ISA-based modem.

    When the installation is complete, you notice that the 56-Kbps modem is not functioning.You use Computer Management to view the modems for your computer.

    Device Manager shows that the 33.6 Kbps modem and the 56Kbps modem are conflicting with each other.You want to configure Windows 2000 Professional to use only the 56Kbps modem.

    What should you do?

      To answer, click the select and place button and then drag the designated actions to the appropriate Action box for each modem in the diagram.(Note: Both boxes must be filled.If a box does not require a specified action, use No action required.)

    Answer: Drag No Action Needed to PLACE 1 Drag Disable Using Device Manager to PLACE 2

    Explanation: The two modems are having a system resource conflict.The 33.6 Kbps modem will not be used any longer and has been replaced by the 56 Kbps modem.You can therefore disable the 33.6 Kbps modem using the Device Manager setting on the Hardware tab of the System component of the Control Panel.By disabling the built-in 33.6 Kbps modem, it will no longer compete for system resources.The system resources would thus be available for the 56 Kbps modem and it will then work correctly.No action thus needs be taken on the 56 Kbps modem.

  8. You are configuring five computers for Windows NT Workstation 4.0 and Windows 2000 Professional. Each computer has an 8 GB hard disk.

    You configure the hard disk on each computer to have two 4 GB partitions.Windows NT Workstation is installed on drive C and Windows 2000 Professional on drive D.

    In Windows 2000 Professional, you configure a disk quota on drive D to prevent users from saving work files on the disk.You restart your computer and load Windows NT Workstation.You notice that users can save files to drive D. You want to prevent users from saving the files to drive D in either operating system.You also want to ensure that users can access both drives while using either operating system.

    What should you do?

    1. Use Windows 2000 Professional to configure drive D as a dynamic partition.
    2. Use Windows 2000 Professional to enable encrypting file system on drive D.
    3. Use Windows NT workstation to configure NTFS permissions on drive D to deny the users write permission.
    4. Reinstall Windows NT Workstation after configuring disk quotas.

    Answer: C

    Explanation: You can use NTFS permissions to prevent users from saving files to a specific drive, partition or folder.NTFS permissions can be set on Windows NT computers that use the NTFS file system.Setting the NTFS permissions to deny users write permissions will prevent the users from saving work files on the disk.

  9. You are the administrator of a Windows 2000 network.You need to store secured files for your company's accounting and legal departments on a Windows 2000 Professional computer.

    You want to accomplish the following goals:

    • Enable users in both departments to access their own files from the network
    • Enable users in the accounting department to view the legal accounting department's documents
    • Prevent users in the legal department from being able to view the accounting department's documents
    • Enable managers within the company to access and modify both the accounting and the legal department's files
    You take the following actions:
    • Create two shared folders named Accounting and Legal
    • Create three groups named Accounting, Legal, and Management
    • Allow the Accounting group modify permission on the Accounting folder
    • Allow the Legal group modify permission on the Legal folders.
    • Allow the Management group modify permission on both the Accounting and Legal folders.

    Which result or results do these actions produce?

      (Choose all that apply) A. Users in both departments can access to their own files from the network. B. Users in the accounting department can view the legal department's documents. C. Users in the legal department cannot view the accounting department's documents. D. Company managers can access and modify both departments' files.

    Answer: A, C, D.

    Explanation: A: The Accounting group has Modify permission to the Accounting folder, and the Legal department has Modify permission to the Legal folders, so both departments can access their own files. C: The Legal group has not been granted any permissions on the Accounting folder so they cannot access the Accounting department's documents. D: The Management group has Modify permissions to both the Accounting and the Legal folders so they will be able to modify both departments' files. Incorrect Answers B: The Accounting group has been not been granted any permissions on the Legal folders.They cannot view these folders.

  10. You are the administrator of your company's network.A user named Peter runs Windows 2000 Professional on his portable computer.Peter wants to be able to work at home on files that were created in the office on the company network.Prior to logging off the network and leaving the office, Peter enables Offline Files. Peter calls you from home and reports that copies of his folders and files on the network are not available on his portable computer.

    What should you instruct Peter to do?

    1. Enable file and print sharing. Peter will be able to access his files at home immediately.
    2. Synchronize all offline files. Peter will be able to access his files at home immediately.
    3. At the office, make the files available offline. Peter will be able to access his files the next time he logs off the network.
    4. At the office, create a shortcut to the Offline Files folder. Peter will be able to access his files the next time he logs off the network.

    Answer: C

    Explanation: Peter must make the files available offline when he is connected to the network (not from home). This will synchronize the files the next time Peter logs off the network. Note: To use files and folders offline the files and folders must be synchronized.This entails the copying of files onto the portable computer when the user logs off from the network.This will enable the user to access and work with the files offline.When the user logs on to the server again, the files that have been altered offline must be copied onto the server to overwrite the outdated files on the server.
